Presentation of Web Pages Dedicated to Romanian Philately
at the World Philatelic Exhibition EFIRO 2008
The Philatelic Webmasters Organization (PWO), in collaboration with the AIJP and the OC, has organized at the World Philatelic Exhibition EFIRO 2008 (Bucharest, Romania, 20 - 28 June) a presentation of excerpts from worldwide philatelic websites, devoted to Romanian philately. The webmasters of the most important sites were contacted by the PWO and they kindly accepted to participate in this important philatelic event, dedicated to the 150th anniversary of the creation of the first Romanian stamps, the famous Bull Heads.
The presentation took place at one of the best locations at EFIRO 2008, in the vicinity of the Court of Honor and of the Philatelic Museum, on a surface of 45 m2.
The participating web pages could deal with any chapter of the rich Romanian philately. They contain scanned images of philatelic material, explanatory text and captions. The accepted languages for the text and captions were English, French, German and Romanian. Participation was free of charge. It was not required that the participants be members of specific philatelic organizations.
